Lego – the product has been around for decades. It has been carried forward from generations to generations but when did all this start? Where did Lego come from? What was its purpose?
Let’s find it out here!
The name Lego derived from Danish words ‘leg godt’, meaning ‘play well’. The name explains everything that Lego is all about. The Lego group was founded in 1932 by a Danish carpenter – Ole Kirk Kristiansen. He used to make wooden toys for his four children in his spare time and eventually he set up his full-time business. It has come a long way over the past 8 decades – from a small carpenter’s workshop to a global enterprise that is now one of the world’s largest manufacturers of toys.
The Lego brick in its present form was launched in 1958. The interlocking principles with its tubes make it unique and offer unlimited building possibilities. Lego is a wonderful way of letting the ocean of your creativity flow and fuel your imagination through play.
